Abstract

Over the past 120 years, the discipline of oncology has evolved so that a multitude of anatomical and increasingly complex functional imaging techniques are now applicable in both clinical and research platforms. This Timeline article revisits the achievements of the pioneer techniques in cancer imaging, discusses how these techniques have changed over time, provides some examples of clinical importance, and ventures to explain how imaging will remodel the future of modern oncology.
